Normally, this toxic gas is safely vented outside. A CO leak can be lethal, making it necessary to have a carbon monoxide detector in your home. While manufacturer's instructions for CO detector placement vary, there are some general rules you should remember.

Important Reasons to Routinely Test the Carbon Monoxide Detectors in Your HomeCarbon monoxide (CO)–a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas–is produced by the appliances you use in your home every day. Anything that burns fuel, such as a gas-fired furnace or water heater, produces carbon monoxide as a byproduct of incomplete combustion. Under normal circumstances, these harmful fumes are vented outside, but when something goes wrong, carbon monoxide gas could leak into your home.

Would You Know if You Were Exposed to Carbon MonoxideCarbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, invisible gas that is produced in exhaust from vehicles, gas furnaces, stoves, wood fires and other appliances that work by combustion. Unfortunately, CO can be very hazardous to humans and animals, and, in fact, causes hundreds of accidental deaths in the United States every year. Since it can't be detected by sight or smell, how would you know if you'd been exposed to carbon monoxide?

Hazards Of Car Starts In Your Garage: Carbon Monoxide LeaksMany people make a habit of warming their car up by turning on the ignition and letting the car run for a while inside their garage when the air turns chilly. Even if the overhead garage door is left open while the car is running, carbon monoxide (CO) quickly accumulates in the enclosed space, and lingers after you have shut the garage door and pulled away. Air quality engineers estimate that it could take as little time as two minutes or less for lethal concentrations of the colorless, invisible fumes to fill the space. When the garage is attached to your house, any trapped CO can seep from the garage into your home and remain there for hours.

"Came home from work to find that my furnace wasn't working. Since the temperatures were extremely mild for November, I just left a message for them to call me the next day. Received a call by 7:25 am and told that the repair man would be there in approximately a half hour. He was at my house by 8:30 and he had it back running within 45 minutes. He went the extra step and made sure that there was no other possible issues before he left. I'd recommend Hartman Brothers Heating to anyone, they are courteous, reliable, knowledgeable and won't gouge you like some companies."

"Great first impression with the receptionist who answered my call after the first ring! She was friendly, professional, and genuine... The service repair technician was professional and took time to explain the repair that he recommended to the A/C unit. He fixed the unit on the spot. Not only great service, but great people too. Thank you, Hartman Brothers!"

"Brian showed me what was wrong with my air conditioning unit and explained everything so I could understand. He spoke to Vicki at the office regarding a needed part that would have to be ordered. They could have slapped a generic part on, but it would have only been a short-term fix. Instead of taking the easy way out, they are getting the part made for my unit so it will stay fixed, and they are coming back to finish the job as soon as they have the part. Hartman Brothers is ethical, knowledgeable, friendly, and they do the job right! I highly recommend them!"
